The Salvation Army Teams Up With Walmart to “Stuff the Bus”


The Salvation Army Teams Up With Walmart to “Stuff the Bus”

Volunteers and community members support local children with school supply donations nationwide

Saturday, August 3, 2019
8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  at Walmart locations across Indiana and the U.S.

WHO: The Salvation Army Indiana Division officers, staff, and local volunteers; Walmart store managers

WHAT: Walmart shoppers online and in-store will receive a list of suggested supplies to help fill The Salvation Army’s bus or collection bin during the “Stuff the Bus” campaign event. The goal is to provide new school supplies for classrooms and Hoosier children in need across the state. This national campaign can be followed throughout the day on social media using the hashtag #StuffTheBus.

WHY: Walmart and The Salvation Army have collaborated for more than 30 years with a common mission: to meet needs in their local communities. Supporters like Walmart help The Salvation Army serve more than 23 million Americans each year through a range of social services to help them overcome poverty and economic hardships.

The simple act of providing school supplies to students in need provides them a boost of self-confidence and sets them up for a positive and successful school year. All donations made at “Stuff the Bus” campaign events will remain in the local community and will help The Salvation Army provide back-to-school support to local children in need and supplies to restock classrooms as the school year progresses.

WHEN: Saturday, August 3, 2019; 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. (Please reach out to Samantha Hyde or your local Salvation Army contact to confirm the best time and location for media interviews.)
